I agree on the Billins part, I just thought you were referring to most of the guys like Paetcsh who I think is the perfect guy to have down there on that blue line.
The griffins actually do use prospects in all the major roles of the game really, the PK is usually Callahan, Aubry, Parkes, Ferraro, Nicastro (surprised no Sheahan yet). The PP is Tatar, Nyquist, Ferraro, Smith etc.
Using prospects in pretty much all the big time situations is actually a big part of why GR hasnt done much playoff wise for a while. If you look at the 09 team you see a lot of career, good AHlers with experience. Now its mostly prospects.
